Although this isn't an answer to your question - I'm not sure I
understand the benefit of such a service in the first place; what is the
advantage of this process over printing your document instead of
uploading it, signing it yourself with a pen, and mailing it to the one
you want it to go to yourself?

If the idea is that the document isn't a format that lends itself to
printing, how do they "merge" your signature image with it in any
meaningful way that you couldn't do yourself just as easily?

Just curious...
